Question: Good evening..
I have had red spots on my penis off and on. They seem to occur after I have sex with my wife. I am assuming it some type of friction. It does not seem to clear up. It doesn't really hurt but does itch especially if I am sweating I first saw if after a prolonged sexual night. Is there something I can do to clear up the redness? Or can it be something more serious. I have had one partner for a long time so I would think it cannot be herpes.

Dear sir,

From your description it appears that you are having balanitis secondary to infection and you get the infection each time from your wife. You need to start yourself and your wife on oral fluconazole tablets and local application of antifungal cream.

The infection can happen even if both of you have steady relationship. I shall be keen to get your random blood sugar done as this condition is much more common in diabetes.

All the best. Take care.

Sincerely

Rajiv Goel

I had casual sex a month ago and a few days after felt the head of my penis burning as well as the part between testicles and anus (urethra?). Some days I felt a sensation like urine incontinency and sometimes i detect discharge which looks and feels very much like pre-semen, but I have found that that discharge is mostly after having sex or just an erection.

I consulted a general medician first and a uro-whatever doctor afterwards. The latter made tests for chlamydia (blood test), VIH, Sifilis, and another urine test (I already had one taken with the first sympthoms). Everything was negative/ok, just mucin was high both times. Now, the first doctor recommended a treatment of Ciprofloxacine with some red pills that made me pee orage color, both for a week. The second doctor gave me some 7 pills that were a mixture of Tinidazole (250 mg), Azitromicine (500 mg) and Fluconazole (37.5) and instructed me to buy 3 more for a total 5 days. Since I was not able to get that combined pill in local drugstore I bought last two separated and Metronidazole instead of Tinidazole. I finished the treatment. Pain has mainwhile relieved mostly, but I still see the discharge. Any suggestions?
